Exhibition: On the Thresholds of Knowledge

Date: 6 September–8 October I Place: Kungshuset, Lund
Skissernas Museum (the Museum of Artistic Pro­cess and Public Art) and Inter Arts Center pres­ent boundary­-crossing public art in Kungshuset. The works challenge notions of what art can be, and re­late to the University’s relationship to the city of Lund. What is knowledge? Where can it be found? And how is it used today? We explore the concept of knowledge with both local and international artists and examine how the city is connected to the University.
